Details:  About Speed Dating in Manchester Events
At one of our Manchester Speed Dating events, you will have four minutes to chat to each date, Four minutes is long enough to see if you click with the person you are talking to and whether you would like to see them again and also short enough if you don't.
At the end of each date you have a brief few moments to make some notes on the person you have just dated. This is something to help jog your memory for the post event matching process the next day.


What if I like another speed dater at a Manchester Speed Dating event?

Use your Speeding Ticket to make notes at the end of each date and tick the people you like and want to see again. The next day or so, simply sign on to the web site and tick the people you want to see again.
